Friday's Fancies

6.7.12

As you might have guessed, today's Friday's Fancies theme at {long distance loving} is stars & stripes in celebration of the 4th of July. At the risk of being cheesy, I went with red striped shorts from J. Crew and a highly patriotic {but still so cute} bracelet set by Alex and Ani. I have to admit, I quickly realized it's tough to sport the red, white, and blue without looking over the top, so I kept the rest of the outfit pretty basic with a sheer white tee and simple flat sandals. Though I must admit, I saw quite a few pairs of denim American flag shorts while at the fireworks show Wednesday night and I was liking them! Still, these striped shorts are much more up my alley.

Hoping you all had a lovely 4th of July! Mine was spent grubbing on amazing BBQ with the boyfriend's family, playing hide & seek with his little sister, then later heading out to a huge fireworks show. And I loved every minute of it! 

So, what do you think? Do YOU like to go all-out for the Fourth in red, white, and blue or do you keep it a bit more subtle?
